Deep Creek State Park MD

My wife and I along with our son and grandson spent a week at DCSP. It is a beautiful campground with lots of trees surrounding each camp site We were in the electric loop so we had electricity but there is no water hook up. The park was very clean and the bath house that I used was always very clean with plenty of hot water. although we did not see any bears signs are posted all over the place to be on the look out for Black Bears and they also provide bear proof containers at each sight. Did see plenty of deer and fawns.

There is plenty to do in the area to include hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, boating and sightseeing. There is a guarded beach that is included with your camping pass. The beach is within walking distance of the camp sight if one is so inclined otherwise there is plenty of parking at the beach area. You can also rent canoes and kayaks by the hour or day at the beach.

They have a very nice discovery center that our grandson enjoyed.

As to sightseeing we went to Swallow Falls state park and and walked the trail between big Swallow falls and Muddy Falls. Absolutely beautiful views, however, be sure to wear good hiking shoes as the trail can be slippery and there are a lot of stairs to climb up or down at Muddy falls depending on which way you are going.

We also went to Penn Alps an artisan village located in Grantsville. They had some great artisians that did pottery, weaving, quilting, bird carving, wood carving etc. Strongly recommend.

We had a sweet tooth so we went to the bakery in Accident and also the creamery there and bought fresh goat cheese. The creamery has a great selection of cheeses.

The one down side to the State Park could be the sights. Some are difficult to get into because of the angle other then that it is a great place to camp.

Oh my old stomping ground. Grew up on the lake. It's allot different from the 70's-80's, still a great place. Still have family there, need to get back more often.
